The Petty Museum is now selling original Adam Petty diecasts, and the proceeds will go to a very good cause.
If you read NASCAR Race Mom, you know that Victory Junction is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.
Here's a great idea for a great cause: The Level Cross, N.C-based Petty Museum http://rpmuseum.com is now selling original Adam Petty No. 45 diecast cars in 1/64 scale and 1/12 scale at a cost of $8 and $45 dollars, respectively.
Adam, a fourth-generation racer for the Petty family, died in a crash in May 2000 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Proceeds from sale of the diecast cars will benefit the Petty Family Foundation. The Foundation will then donate funds to support Victory Junction, the camp built in honor of Adam Petty. Additional donations will go into the college tuition fund of Adam's nieces and nephews.
"After Adam's accident, all of his merchandise was taken off the shelves across the country," said Sharon Farlow, executive director of the Petty Museum and daughter of Richard Petty. "The family and the Museum had this merchandise stored until earlier this year when we began to sell his shirts and hats. We are now ready to sell the diecast cars that we have in stock."
"Our purpose is to always remember Adam," said Farlow. "This is an opportunity for fans to also remember Adam and at the same time make a purchase to give back to the Petty Family Foundation and help aid Victory Junction, a place that we all cherish."
Fans may purchase the diecast cars and all remaining original Adam Petty merchandise at the Petty Museum, 309 Branson Mill Road, Level Cross, N.C. For details call the Petty Museum at 336-495-1143 or visit Petty Museum on Facebook or Twitter.
